Question about LG GMA-4082N 8X SLIM DVD RW DRIVE FOR NOTEBOOK(Black-tray) W/SW (GMA4082N) Burner
Hello! This is over my head. I am trying to burn a DVD onto a Memorex DVD+R DL. When I put the blank media in my machine, a Lenovo 3000 N100, the machine recognizes it as a CD-R. I have searched for Firmware upgrades as was recommended by a friend, but heard that if I flash the wrong firm ware I could ruin my drive. Can anyone offer any advice whatsoever, please? Thanks
Try updating the friver first, fimware flashing isn't really for the average end user and yes you would risk ruining the drive beyond any simple repair. also make sure the drive supports dl disks, and try another dvd maybe even buy a differnet brand dvd+rdl, if you decide to change the firmwar emake sure you open the device manager and get the newest firmware version for that exact drive from the manufacturer of the dvdrom drive not the computer, lenovo is the company that made assembled the computer the parts may be from different companies, I'd say that the drive may be bad or windows may be having an issue with the driver.
